Correction to: Cell type-specific localization of Ephs pairing with ephrin-B2 in the rat postnatal pituitary gland

The published online version contains mistakes in Table 1, Table 2 and Fig. 2. See below for the corrected Tables and Figure.

S100β-Positive Cells of Mesenchymal Origin Reside in the Anterior Lobe of the Embryonic Pituitary Gland

The anterior and intermediate lobes of the pituitary gland develop through invagination of the oral ectoderm and as they are endocrine tissues, they participate in the maintenance of vital functions via the synthesis and secretion of numerous hormones. We recently observed that several extrapituitary cells invade the anterior lobe of the developing pituitary gland. This raised...

Critical role of IFN-γ in CFA-mediated protection of NOD mice from diabetes development

IFN-γ signaling-deficient non-obese diabetic (NOD) mice develop diabetes with similar kinetics to those of wild-type NOD mice. However, the immunization of IFN-γ signaling-deficient NOD mice with CFA failed to induce long-term protection, whereas wild-type NOD mice receiving CFA remained diabetes-free. CFA also failed to protect IFN-γ receptor-deficient (IFN-γR–/–) NOD mice from...

Protection of IFN-γ signaling-deficient NOD mice from diabetes by cyclophosphamide

Non-obese diabetic (NOD) mice that are genetically deficient in either IFN-γ or β chain of the IFN-γR develop diabetes with similar kinetics to wild-type NOD mice. In the current study, we demonstrated that treatment of IFN-γ signaling-deficient NOD mice with cyclophosphamide (CY) not only fails to induce acute diabetes but also confers permanent protection from diabetes...
